Elgin O'Hare Western Access Project
Elgin O’Hare Tollway, a project which has been in the planning and design stages for many years now, will become a reality in the very near future. Widespread construction is underway along various sections of Thorndale Avenue and the existing Elgin O’Hare Expressway near I-290 and further west.
Safety Improvement Project
This project consists of intersection reconstruction and widening, new combination concrete curb and gutter, traffic signal modernization, traffic signal interconnection, storm sewer, water main, lighting and retaining walls. An additional southbound right turn lane will be provided which will accommodate dual right turns onto WB Irving Park Road. An eastbound Irving Park Road right turn lane is also being added to the intersection. The west leg of Commercial Street and Wood Dale Road will be realigned and relocated approximately 500 feet north of existing Commercial Street.
